In spite of all of their advantages, I have no envy of monarchs.
Strong Christmas Story vibes of Ralph being made to wear the bunny pajamas
He looks like Prince Herbert from Monty Python’s The holy Grail.
It looks like Rudolf is wearing this crown, or a replica of sorts.
Rudolf was the only son of Franz Joseph. He died in a double suicide with his mistress in the Mayerling incident. I forget the exact details, but I want to say Rudolf was mentally unwell due to STDs and other possible mental illness.
Of more importance was that his death meant his cousin Franz Ferdinand was now going to be potential Emperor of Austria one day – until a certain assassination in Sarajavo began a series of events that ultimately led to WWI.
